Nils Bothe and Börries Többens were appointed Partners in KPMG's Finance and Treasury Management Advisory business as of 1 October.
Alongside the comprehensive professional focus demonstrated by all partners, Nils Bothe will also head the team specialising in the treasury management systems of ION (Wallstreet Suite, ITS). In a similar vein, Börries Többens will specialise in advisory concerning SAP modules for treasury operations. As of 1 September 2019, Michael Gerhards took over responsibility for Treasury Advisory services with a focus on FIS systems (Quantum, Integrity, Trax and Kiodex) in his role as Partner. By assigning responsibilities at partner level for the major system providers, KPMG is stepping up its strategy of combining technical know-how with professional expertise in its advisory for organisational structures, processes and methods. And with other managers specialising in the systems of Bellin, COPS and Kyriba, KPMG has over 40 experts covering all relevant treasury management systems in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, underlining the firm's position as a leading treasury IT advisor across multiple systems.
A high-performance system architecture provides the basis for digitalisation and additional analysis and forecasting methods involving large data volumes, for example with automated cash forecasting or FX management. Transformation projects, such as setting up a new treasury function following a spin-off, integrating two finance divisions after a merger, or process and organisational optimisation, very often accompany the selection and implementation – or further development – of IT systems. Consequently, all projects must include IT solutions that support in-house processes to the greatest possible extent.
By combining broad technical know-how of the relevant systems with extensive knowledge of the methods and processes in treasury, KPMG provides independent advice covering the whole range of requirements. This means that a suitable system can be chosen in selection projects. We can provide support with the enhancement and redesign of treasury departments and the implementation of new digital functions across the entire spectrum of treasury management systems.
